Lynn Valley Mall Re-development is around the corner
According to a local realtor's November Newsletter, the sales office where the floor plans can be pre-viewed for Building F (the old Library site) and Building E will be opening in January 2016. The sales office will be located where the Loonie Store used to be across from CIBC. One of the amenities the project will boast is Geothermal heat.
This project certainly had its controversy during public hearing stage. The originally rumoured planned structures were as high as 26 or more stories and ended up being paired down about 10. District council seemed to listen to the public opposition in Lynn Valley which was quite strong with many residents feeling the project was out of character with the neigbourhood. A website, Stophighrises in Lynn Valley was created in opposition to the project. At the other end of the rink was the Lynn Valley Community Association who seem to rally very strongly in favour of this development siting a 'dying Mall' that needed rejuvenation.
